YAP proposal #148: Using Software to Measure Dairy Success in Real-time (Gidraph Mwangi, Kenya)


I’m Gidraph Mwangi, 24, built-in business acumen, entrepreneur, and founder of Havilah Dairy Farms. I am a Bachelor of Business Management graduate from Africa Nazarene University who considers himself a change-agent, seeking to empower the society through everyday actions.


DairyLink Software is a comprehensive online dairy farm management record.

The software records daily production of the cows. With three columns, the software gives farmers who milk twice or thrice daily, the opportunity to record production of each cow, in a timely and accurate manner. This is critical in that the farmer will know the amount in litres he gets, then he can budget for his income. Also, this will help prospective buyers who will know the cow’s potential before purchase.

The software has growth charts to guide dairy farmers on the progress of his/her livestock as he can record weight against the age of the cow. This will be important, as the farmer will be able to know milestones of the animal, such as when it attains weight for insemination. In addition, the software will provide mineral and nutritional requirements at every stage, from birth to maturity.

DairyLink Software provides a bulk messaging system, which will be linked to all farmers subscribed to the SMS system, for live updates and reminders on various aspects of their farms. This will include extension officers visiting their areas and dairy training.

Through linking with mobile money service providers, the farmers will get payments directly into their phone accounts for accountability. This will be linked with the suppliers such that milk delivered is recorded in the system and paid on time directly to the farmers thus eliminating middlemen and saving farmers costs.

Additionally, the software provides monthly statements of financial performance.

DairyLink records veterinary visits as well as medications given to every cow. This will help farmers in maintaining their herd in a healthy manner such that when illnesses are treated all the medications are recorded, the veterinary who issued them, as well as batch numbers of the drugs. These records will bring an end to instances where farmers are given expired drugs.

The software maintains a database of call-away veterinarians. This helps farmers who have emergencies in their farms reach veterinarians urgently, saving the situation or life of the animal.

The software records artificial insemination and breeding records, and the dates and time of the insemination. We at Farm Link connect farmers with professional veterinary doctors who have quality semen in their database linked to the software.

Moreover, the system gives a reminder to Farmers 24 hours before an event, such as the next time a cow goes on heat in relation to past heat, so that the farmer is aware and can plan with the inseminators.


IMAGE 2First, I’m motivated to be an agent of change in society. Fellow youngsters further motivate me and ambitious farmers who want to set the record straight.

I’m also motivated by my past mistakes. Mistakes of buying dairy cows without records. Mistakes which I will forever cherish for having brought me to this idea that will help fellow young farmers get value for what they buy as well as take care of what we’ve bought.

Many young farmers are investing their hard-earned money buying dairy cattle without health records, production records, and even breeding records at astronomical prices.

Records will help farmers make the right decisions before purchasing a cow. The same records will help farmers manage their herds in a healthy and profitable manner.


I have teamed up with an IT expert and together we will develop the software. With the help of an experienced veterinarian, we have been able to put down on paper all the different records necessary to a dairy farm.

So far, the system exists on paper as we make an interface of the whole system to run on phones and desktops.

Success indicators for this project are:

  • Number of dairy farmers who purchase and use the software.
  • Number of reviews from users. The higher the reviews the greater the impact we know we have and improvements we have to make.

3 months

USD 2,000 will be used to develop the software to completion. A world-class software that will supersede local and regional boundaries.

2 months

USD 500 will be allocated to test, make improvements and work on reviews from our customers.

3 months

USD 1,000 will be used to brand and market the software to farmers.

3 months

USD 1,000 will go to launching the software and making it accessible to all farmers. Training and after-sale services.

1 month

USD 500 will go to unforeseeable eventualities as well as an emergency account to cater for miscellaneous expenses.

      Much appreciated.

  57. Embracing technology is the way to go for farmers to work ‘smarter’. In your upcoming software, did you include the tracking of the stolen cow?

    1. Greetings Rotich.
      At the moment we don’t have that in the software, but we have grateful room from inclusions and adjustments.
      Thanks for the comment.

  58. Intriguing and motivating. We need more of this in the world. People with a passion to think outside the box and a desire to make a difference. The Agriculture Sector is one of the fast growing sectors in the World. With the hunger n poverty crisis, it’s only wise to invest in this sector. Impressive and up!

    1. An investment in agriculture is an investment in the future. We cannot go wrong with farming.
      Thanks Hachi.

  59. Good stuff that will accelerate benchmarking, business analysis, individual cow performance and hopefully it will also be an invaluable tool for any potential buyers of cattle in the future. Keep it up.

    1. John Gatundu
      Absolutely true. Records are an indispensable tool for benchmarking, analysis and performance analysis.
      Thanks for the comment.

  60. this is very good. However, l expected important sections like expenditure / time to be summarized either in Graff or column forms.

  61. brilliant idea Steve.Am sure you have seen my struggle ,Mobile farming is not easy at all .Proper record keeping is very important in this day and age.

    1. Yes Lucy. Your struggle has been real. Mobile farmers will be able to monitor their farms greatly.

  62. Congratulations brother, being a daily farmer, these happens to be the best project too good to be true best wishes, I’ll be the first to buy your software

    1. Thanks Margaret
      I will surely give dairy farmers the best software in the market. They deserve it.

  63. A brilliant idea whose time has come!
    As a dairy farmer I wish to see this software finally working given the enormous benefits it will bring to the dairy farmers.
    Wishing you the best as we wait for this revolution in dairy.

    1. This is a revolutionary approach to record keeping and the benefits of it cannot be overstated. Many farmers will find this software easy to use and very useful at a low cost.

  64. Fellow leader, beautiful idea that must be supported to full implementation. I am really interested, kindly get in touch.

    1. Kinuthia I will get in touch with you once we are through with this first stage. Having worked with you, I can never understate your words.

      The idea will see light of day soon.

  65. Hi Mwangi,
    your innovation sounds brilliant!
    kindly count me in among the first to use your services once you go commercial.
    We need more people like you in our midst.
    In addition to all the benefits that will be brought about by the wonderful innovations like yours,
    I would support any idea to eleminate the middlemen/brokers who are in my opinion are like blood sucking ticks who drain farmers of almost, if not all their profits. well done Mwangi.

    1. Main threat to development of Agriculture is middlemen and brokers. I believe farmers can get direct marketing for their produce. A farmer must get paid for his produce and minimize losses through unscrupulous brokers.

      Thanks George

  66. Brilliant brilliant idea ! You have the potential to do it small Bro ! I see you pushing till it happens ! Go Steve You shall make it! God is with you. Count on my support .
